Introducing the formula for area

Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video slides, and worksheets. (I’ve also put the question sheet and answer sheet below.)

Don’t forget, you can watch, pause and rewind the video as you need to.

You can also visit the BBC Bitesize website for an extra video on today’s maths lesson (Monday 11th May).


The links are below:




Just a reminder – the idea is that the BBC provides further support to help you learn, you will still need to complete the White Rose question sheet, and as always, you can check your answers.

LO: TBAT describe a setting.



This week, we are going to be using a video story as our inspiration. It is called ‘Catch It!’ I really enjoy this film, and each time I watch it, I notice something new. It also makes me giggle – a lot!

I hope you all enjoy it, too!

It is a short film about a group of meerkats who lovingly tend to a beloved and unique fruit in the middle of the Savannah.  One day, their peaceful existence is disrupted by a vulture intent on stealing their pride and joy. Will the meerkats be able to get it back?

Watch the video, thinking about the setting of the African Savannah. You might choose to watch the video more than once.

Imagine you are there, and ask yourself:

  • What can I see around me? Are there trees? Is it barren or full of life?
  • What can I feel under my feet and what can I touch?
  • What can I smell in the air?
  • What can I hear? Are there things I can hear but can’t see?
  • What is the temperature?

Your job today, is to write a paragraph or two to describe the setting of this film.

You can write in 1st, 2nd or 3rd person – I don’t mind.


On venturing out of my tent, where I had passed a restful night, I had to squint as I entered what felt like a whole new world. It was bright. The rays warmed my skin and scorched the earth beneath my feet. At no point had I ever been to a place with a sky as vivid blue and the sun as alive.

Please write your description on Purple Mash. It is in your 2Dos – What I have Learned template.

I’ve attached the Y5/6 spelling and the fronted adverbial mat to help.

Topic  - CEOP – Staying Safe Whilst On-line!

Home Activity 3


We are still all spending a lot more time than we would normally on a computer. I’m sure a lot of us are also keeping in touch with friends and family on computers or screens and no doubt, we’re playing a few more games on-line than we normally would, too.

This is all okay and it can be a lot of fun, but we need to remember how to keep ourselves and others safe whilst using the internet.

Today, just like last week, all year groups will be doing some activities about staying safe on-line. I’d like you to follow the link below. It will take you to the ‘Think You Know’ home learning activity pack 3.


Work your way through the page, try to have fun and pay attention to what it says – it makes a lot of sense!

Don’t forget you can share how you get on by emailing:


I’ve put the activity sheets below as well.
